The ACTRA Member Initiated Production (MIP) Program is designed to stimulate the desire of ACTRA members to come together and create original works of art without having the financial resources to pay established daily fees to performers. It is also intended to encourage ACTRA members to advance their skills as actors and allow them to develop their skills in other key creative areas.

ACTRA Alberta is pleased to announce funding for ACTRA Alberta members to create their own work. Four (4) grants of $2,000 will be given to members who produce under the ACTRA Member Initiated Production Agreement. An additional $500 will be available if 50% of cast & crew are BIPOC ACTRA Alberta members. 

All (Full, Apprentice and Additional Background) Members in good standing may apply.

Grant Application Deadline: check back in late 2021 or 2022
Project Completion Deadline: Wednesday, June 30, 2021
